Have you heard of Cheese Slaw? It’s not really slaw, it’s a delectable dip made with swiss cheese, green onions, jalapenos, and pepperoncinis.
Origin of Cheese Slaw
I discovered this recipe in the Oh My Stars! Junior League of Roanoke Valley cookbook and have made it many times.
The real name of this dip is “Lib Wilhelm’s Cheese Slaw.” Lib Wilhelm was a well-known and much-loved caterer in Roanoke for over 40 years.
Serving Cheese Slaw
According to Wilhelm, this dip should be served in a hollowed out cabbage.
I have not served this in a hollowed-out cabbage but think that it’s a great idea. I usually serve cheese slaw in a bowl with a basket of crackers beside it.
What Gives Cheese Slaw a Kick?
Cheese slaw has a kick thanks to finely chopped jalapeno peppers.
I can imagine that fresh jalapenos would be fabulous but I’ve always used Mt. Olive brand that I find on the pickle aisle at the grocery store.
What to Serve with Cheese Slaw
It is suggested to serve cheese slaw with corn chip scoops but I’ve always served it with Triscuits.
Cheese slaw is delicious served with any cracker and it’s also great on baked potatoes.
Where I’ve Served Cheese Slaw
I’ve served cheese slaw at Supper Club, tennis socials, school functions, and lake parties where it is always a hit.
